Player earned the accolades

February 19, 2014 

I enjoyed reading the article about Ali Ringering, who plays basketball for Red Bud High School. She sounds like a great kid and her parents should be very proud of her. She is not only one of the top basketball players in the metro-east but she is also a 4.0 student.

I coach several soccer teams in Southern Illinois and St. Louis and I wish I had a few Ali Ringerings on my team. For her coach tocompareAli's basketball skills to Teresa Lisch is the best compliment she could ever get. Teresa was one of the best players to come out of the metro-east and she was a great kid, too.

Good luck to Ali and her teammates during the playoffs this year. I hope theygo to state and win it all.
